In this episode of the Escape Diet Prison Podcast, Deb and I explore the concept of “enough“.
Many ex-dieters have a hard time connecting with their body’s signals of hunger and fullness. It takes a while for them to re-learn what it means to have had enough food. When do you eat and when do you stop?
How do you stop eating before you’re super stuffed but also give yourself and your body enough pleasure to sustain you and keep you full of energy?
There are no black and white answers to this question and the feeling of what is “enough” will vary from day to day. It’s different for every person as every body is unique.
And that’s exactly where most have a slight freak out, right? After all, we’re so used to not having any grey zones when it comes to our diet. There are good foods and bad foods, depending on which expert we follow. We are supposed to eat what is deemed healthy and should feel guilty for eating anything else.
We eat exactly how much our weight loss expert told us to eat – whether we’re (still) hungry or not.
That’s not how it works, though. That’s not how reality is. That’s definitely not what having a healthy and balanced relationship with food looks like.
Exploring the concept of “enough” means building a deep relationship with yourself and rebuilding the trust that you’ve once had. There are certain guidelines (for example that regaining trust in your body and rebuilding the sense of what is enough can’t exist at the same time as managing your weight) you can build your foundation on and there are definitely many parameters that show you you’ve not eaten enough (fatigue, dizziness, constant hunger, hellloooo?!).
This – and more – is what you’ll learn by listening to this week’s show.
